A Season of Dreams
The Stuart family struggles for survival during the Great Depression. Following a decade of peace, the 1930s bring hard times to the country. Men ride the rails in search of jobs, and shantytowns called Hoovervilles spring up across the landscape. The Stuart farm in the Ozarks is failing. Even Lylah in the film industry feels the strain. Changes rock the Stuarts, testing their faith in God and drawing them together in unexpected ways. The younger members of the Stuart clan find themselves in unfamiliar places, from a hobo jungle in an Illinois city to the glitter of a Hollywood movie set. Needing work, several head for Oklahoma, where Uncle Peter single-handedly attempts to build an oil well. In his determination he crosses the powerful and ruthless Kingman Oil Company, with dangerous results. Will the lean years of the Great Depression shatter the family's dreams? Excitement builds in the continuing Stuart saga as family members follow their hearts and find love in surprising places. Formerly a college English professor, Gilbert Morris spends all his waking hours writing fiction. The best-selling author of the House of Winslow series, he lives with his wife in Orange Beach, Alabama.
